PAYDAY 3 in 2022/2023

A new post from Starbreeze follows up on the Swedish developer/publisher's well-publicized financial woes with a look at their future cash-flow prospects (thanks Eurogamer). Given recent history this is surprisingly optimistic, offering a hockey stick graph showing an upcoming influx of capital. They say they've restructured into two new companies, and project they will continue developing PAYDAY 3 next year and that the heist game sequel should come out sometime in 2022-2023:
The cash flows in the graph above are based on the following expected events:

  • Release of PAYDAY 3 estimated to take place in 20222023
  • Publishing agreement for PAYDAY 3 concluded* during the first half of 2020 and an initial payment instalment is received, after which the continued development of the product is financed by the publishing partner
  • Publishing agreement for PAYDAY: Crime War concluded* during the first half of 2020 and an initial payment instalment is received, after which the continued development of the product is financed by the publishing partner

* In conjunction with the signing of these publishing agreements, the possibility of payment to the creditors is created in the ongoing reconstruction work. The payment to the creditors is estimated to be able to amount to approximately SEK 40 million.
